the best branded content is not about a brand, it's about a cause.

it's about making a meaningful contribution to a bigger conversation, inspiring others to share the story while adding their own perspectives.

it's about community, and that might entail building a new community or rediscovering one that's been overlooked.

this short documentary from intel embodies all of these things. it's a story about a technologist helping a long-suffering community help themselves, and in so doing, it reminds us of what we can be in those precious moments when we act generously and selflessly.

A must-read by Benjamin Bratton. "This is beyond popularisation. This is taking something with value and substance and coring it out so that it can be swallowed without chewing. This is not the solution to our most frightening problems – rather this is one of our most frightening problems.

So I ask the question: does TED epitomize a situation where if a scientist's work (or an artist's or philosopher's or activist's or whoever) is told that their work is not worthy of support, because the public doesn't feel good listening to them?"

Well, the more TED added new speakers along the years and kept spreading, the more it felt commercial to me. This is a great post Miclhele, nice to see people are still being critical out there.
